stop buying hair oils (d.i.y. one instead)

by all means, buy a hair oil if you want to and if it works for you. i just needed a catchy title and that was my sad attempt. it also rings true though because price gouging customers in the green beauty industry drives me bonkers. but more on that later…

today i’m sharing my favorite hair oil that can go in any 2 ounce or 50 mL glass jar you have. i’ve found the droppers to be the best fit for hair use. AND – since it’s less than 2 ounces, you can take this through airport security.

this blend is a combination of the best oils i’ve come across either through buying and trying, or through reader and friend experiences.

please be sure to apply sparingly to DAMP hair for the best results.


  • 0.5 ounces ungurahua oil
  • 0.5 ounces sacha inchi oil
  • 0.5 ounces abyssinian oil
  • 3 to 6 drops of essential oils
    • i highly suggest: 3 drops lavender, 2 drops bergamont, 1 drop sandalwood

and where to purchase (no affiliates or anything of the sort; links only provided for reader ease):

*please note that the ungurahua doesn’t have the most amazing smell, but it has the most amazing hair results, hands down.

getting the 4 ounce versions of each ingredient allows you to make 8 bottles of hair oil. that’s a lot. maybe you can gift a few to your friends and family?

>> in any case, it’ll cost you between $10-$12 per bottle of hair oil. another brand sells their ONE ounce version of ungurahua hair oil for $175. yes, you read that correctly.

what are your favorite hair oil blends?

  1. Hi, Alexraye! In making up the recipe you show here, how do you measure out the amount of 0.5 oz you suggest? Thanks!

      1. Lol…Thanks! Also, do you put drops in your hand and smooth the oil over dry hair? Or, as I have read regarding the abyssiniam oil, add to conditioner? I have thin and fine hair….thanks for your responses!

      2. you can totally do either! i smooth a couple drops onto damp hair and let it air dry. if you opt to add it to conditioner, try a little at a time, because if you accidentally add too much, you can’t take it back out. sending love!
